REVIEW: “Miss Saigon” had an uneven start, but the production got better in the second half, even if the narrative remains one where Asia becomes the backdrop for an old Western story.

If we eliminated all musicals where someone doesn't like how something is portrayed, we'd have no musicals. If you don’t like the show, don’t go. If enough people don’t like it, it won’t make financial success to perform it again.

The originator of the role of Kim was Lea Salonga. No one seemed to mind that she was from the Philippines. People now days just are far too sensitive. Just enjoy the show for what it is.

Just as the protesters (by the by, everything in this country is now protested because some people feel offended or feel other should be offended) use their freedom of speech rights so does the production company of the play. The 1st post has it right, if the play repels a paying audience the performances will cease. If people are attracted to the play, it sill continue. The free enterprise system is very efficient and needs no govt help.

"If we eliminated all musicals where someone doesn't like how something is portrayed, we'd have no musicals." An excellent idea!!
